It is a tranquil, safe and private place to stay, where children love the freeedom of the large lawn area and adults enjoy being close to nature in the heart of the Lakelands & Waterways Region. A short walk, cycle or drive brings you to the villages of Dromineer, Puckane, Ballycommon, Killaloe and access to Lough Derg on the River Shannon. We are located in the heart of North Tipperary and close to the shores of Lough Derg.

Are you an independent traveller looking for a holiday destination off the traditional tourist trail but in a spectacular, location and yet close to the tourist sites. Or have you a special family or sailing event on the horizon, that you would like to convene in a memorable, but central location? Do you like the sound of silence, the scents of nature and sporting & sightseeing opportunities in abundance? Would you like the space and comfort of a fantastic luxurious holiday home, with friendly advice and assistance on hand as required.

Our Cottage is an ideal base for the truly rural holiday located on 120 acre family farm in the heart of Tipperary countryside, guests are encouraged to explore the fields and experience rural life at first hand. It is a perfect base for walkers - the cottage is located on the Sli Eala walk, stop off at Hanly Tweeds, Ballyartella or have a pint or some delicious food at The Thatched Cottage, Ballycommon. Enjoy watching or our cows leaving and returning to the pasture each evening for milking and or simply soak up the genuine atmosphere created by this welcoming family.

Our cottage has been prepared to make your vacation truly memorable - high end furnishings, fully equipped cream kitchen with granite breakfast bar, microwave, cooking hob and oven, laundry room with washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board, CD player, Radio, TVs and DVDs.

Gort na gCapall cottage at Annaghbeg, Drominner is a modern luxury home within a traditional Irish Cottage where the pace of life ambles. Three out of our four bedrooms have European King Sized beds (American Queen) which are very tastefully decorated with two en suites making your stay very comfortable. The master bedroom upstairs has a spacious walk in wardrobe and en suite with wonderful black out blinds for the ideal lie in!. We also have a king bedroom downstairs with its own en suite. Our other bedroom has twin beds dressed with crisp white linen. Our open plan living area has a beautiful open fireplace and we supply our own wood for your convenience. The seating in this area is our fine brown leather couches or indeed our window seat for dining in this area.

The Cottage is very spacious complete with Patio for al fresco dining - furniture and BBQ provided. The main bathroom of the house with its marble tiled floor has a free standing bath with separate shower. The open plan kitchen/dining/sun room area contains facilities, equipment and fittings of excellent quality and standard.

For those rainy days, a full DVD Library to choose from and also a full bookcase or indeed a game of pool on our 6' pool table to entertain the younger ones. We can also arrange a cookery demonstration locally where you get to eat the food with a glass of wine - very relaxing.

Due to its location we can provide horse treking, cycle routes, walk routes, local sport, boat trips, fishing and many more activities from which to choose from. Watch the sailboats and fishing boats come and go at the very nearby village of Dromineer. Take a trip on the lake on a 50-seater tour boat.

Alternatively, rent a small sailboat or fishing boat and go exploring on your own. The fishing in the area is great, especially for pike and trout. Local experienced fishing guides will be glad to provide instruction and local knowledge. Facilities on site include an outdoor horse gallop or a trek on a pony and trap can also be organized for the visitor who wants to see the local countryside.

Incedently Our Cottage is also located 10 miles from the famous village of Moneygall where President Obama's ancestors came from. President Obama and his wife Michelle visited this village in May 2011.

The location of the Cottage facilitates a 2 mile wallk/drive to the lakeside village of Dromineer on Lough Derg which boasts Lough Derg Yacht Club, we are 5 miles from the nearest town of Nenagh. The Cottage is located a 50 yard stroll to the walking trail of Sli Eala.

It is such an ideal setting - day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney, the Burren, or the Dingle Peninsula or a shorter day exploring the smaller quaint towns of Terryglass (on Lough Derg) and then Killaloe (on the river Shannon) both a short 15-20 minute drive and the castles in Birr and Limerick about a 40 minute drive. The M-7 (major highway) is only minutes away which cut the long day trips travel time easily by half. Vist the local Pubs for Pub-Grub ie. the Whiskey Still in Dromineer, the Thatched Cottage in Ballycommon and Larkins Pub in nearby Garrkennedy. These pubs also specialise in irish music where one can dance or indeed relax and chat the locals. Nenagh is a quaint and friendly town and just walking through the town and having coffee/tea and a ‘sweet’ in The Pantry, Country Choice or Quigley’s Bakery or visiting the butcher at Hanlons to buy wonderful local meats are all a treat.

We love having guests to stay, sharing life at our cottage, who will enjoy our friendship and a lovely place to stay.

When we return to Ireland they are definitely our first choice for accommodations. The house is a modern four bedroom three bath home with everything you will need. The setting is as gorgeous as Ireland can be. I highly recommend this venue.

Beautiful property in tranquil location while still close to motorways

  • 5 of 5

Gort na gCapall was the perfect property for our group of 4 single adults. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen and dining area with everything you could need for preparing some home cooked meals. Two comfortable lounge areas and a useful laundry for long term travellers. Idyllic, peaceful country setting. We were able to relax for a few days while exploring Tipperary. It was great to come "home" each night and was also perfect for a day just lazing around. We wished we had stayed for longer and would love to return one day. Just about everything you could need in a holiday cottage and in great condition.

Lovely house that is home from home with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at this lovely house. We especially loved watching the cows walk into the fields every morning & our children loved getting up & having a game of pool whilst we were getting ready! Jeanette was extremely welcoming and gave us lots of tips on where to eat/visit & thank you for the bottle of wine that was left in the fridge - it was a lovely gesture.

Be sure to visit Killaloe, it is a lovely town & we loved the boat cruise. Our children also had such fun climbing on the inflatables on the lake in Dromineer. It was a perfect holiday setting & we will be back. Thanks So much Jeanette for sharing your lovely home for the week.

A perfect home in an ideal location for as many or few outings you would like.

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us for this vacation, but the 'cottage' is so substantial that we had more room than we could have hoped for. The rural setting of the cottage is idyllic and had us looking forward to returning there after each outing. Based upon the location, we felt we were within striking distance of any point of interest.

A grocery store and several fine eating establishments are ten minutes or less away.

Jeanette our host was very helpful, not at all intrusive, and a pleasure to meet. Thank you for making our first trip to Ireland such a memorable one.
